I received this ebook for an honest review, my opinions are my own.

This is a very suspenseful read!
I usually can't handle a whole lot of scary, believe it or not I still get afraid of the dark!
This one, has enough of a love story pull to offset the too scary part for me.
If you love a good scare based on local lore, this is a must read for you!
Due to the mature content of the book, it shouldn't be read by younger readers.
The story follows a set of 4 friends as they go on holiday after school. Th

You very rarely get to read anything that lives in your own back garden anymore, or even the excitement of places you've been yourself. As a child I went to Dartmoor allot, it's awesome how Georgina has captured this and brought it so much more life than it actually has by bring myths and Legends to life within it. And Dartmoor is an amazing place to visit, so full of wonder and captivating scenery, and Georgina has brought so much to it in her writing.
I love the story line from the get go, was

Cursed Series #1

YA Horror / Romance. If you enjoy being given goose bumps then you’ll love this book, I had to actually stop reading half way through and continue in daylight ~ in my defence I started at midnight one night and everyone else in the house was asleep so my imagination had free reign to play all kinds of tricks! Whether you know anything about Dartmoor or not, this book is thoroughly enjoyable, and scary - I’m not sure I ever want to stay in a cottage in Dart

This book was provided from the author in exchange for honest literary review.

When four newly graduated teens take a 2 week vacation before university, they never dreamed they would be stepping into one of the fairytales from their childhood. From mystical beasts to have, this book leaves you with an eerie feel.
I enjoyed thks book a lot, the only thing I would have liked to see a little more interaction between the ghost and Daisy . I

I received this book from the author in exchange for my honest review.
Nowadays you rarely find a good story to read, with such a thrill. Georgina Hannan made this story made this story incredible, it made me think how amazing could it be to visit all the places from the book. I loved the story from the start and I couldn't put down the book! I’m glad I had the chance to read it! She knows how to write, how to make you pay attention to every detail and to live with the characters at the same time

"Cursed" by Georgina Hannan is a scary story for young adults.
Four teenagers spend a few days in Dartmoor, an area in Southern England that has its history and share of murder and horror.
While two of the four are already a couple, the second two have also feelings for each other.
The holiday is however not so much about the romance but about the scary stories they are being told and mostly about the eerie and spooky experiences they make themselves during their stay.
It was refreshing to read abou

This book was great. It was easy to follow and had a good story line. The historical references were correct and helped draw the reader in. Once I started reading i struggled to stop until the end.
I'm looking forward to the next book in the trilogy.

Cursed is a great beginning to this trilogy which young adult readers (I’d say 14yrs+) and adults can enjoy. The main character, Daisy, is travelling with her best friend, Alice, Alice’s boyfriend, Jake, and Tyler who is a close friend to them all. After arriving at the house they are to be staying in for their holiday it becomes quite clear that there is more than meets the eye with a possible figure in one of the room’s windows, noises around the house that sometimes sound like crying and the ...more

Different and interesting

Cursed by Georgina Hannan is about a group of teenagers that go off on their first adult-free vacation. While playing tourists, they learn about legends that surround an old historic town, the exact town in which they are staying at. At first, the group believes the stories are just myths, until they begin to experience each legend, one by one. The story overall is different and interesting. I enjoyed it, which is why I give it four stars. I took away one star, because I

**I received this book in exchange for an honest review**
Okay, so I rate this book a one star out of 5.
I had high hopes for this book because it sounded interesting & within the first chapter you learn all kinds of interesting & scary myths associated with the town the group of friends are staying in. However, this book was just well, boring. The characters are flat, the plot is confusing, there seems to be no real rhyme or reason to the story.
The only action comes at the end & when

Four friends decide to take a vacation together and do a little touring. They wind up in a town full of ghost stories that may or may not be true. This is a great paranormal read, you easily fall into the story line and characters. At times I felt like I was reading a travel guide book, but I really enjoyed this spooky read. WaAR
